Odd Snack?!

Really, I don’t think so.

This is something I grew up doing (though I have not had it in years and I do mean years) and really never thought anything of it, that is until recently.

What is that odd thing?

Putting butter on top of a saltine cracker or better yet scooping up a dollop of butter on an oyster cracker and eating it.

My mom would do this all the time with the oyster crackers.

I can’t tell you how many times as a teen I would whip out the butter, the oyster crackers and then sit down to a nice portion of them.

This past weekend dh and I were talking about snacks growing up with the boys.

I blurted out that I used to eat saltines/oyster crackers with butter.

Now, I could have sworn I told him this before but apparently not.

Dh stated that it was some thing he never knew about me and thought it was a bit odd.

I just shrugged my shoulders and said he needed to try it some day. *smile*

I’m not sure what prompted me today to whip out the saltine crackers and place a nice spread of butter on top but I did.

Needless to say one turned into two which turned into lets just say a few more, they are quite addictive. *blush*

That creaminess of the butter mixed with the salt of the cracker.


Is it an odd snack?

Is it a regional thing?

Has anyone else ever eaten this combination before?

I can’t be the only one who does this, can I?
